A comprehensive list of upcoming airdrops to EOS token holders.
In April 2018, EOS became the world’s fifth largest cryptocurrency by market cap. Along with the impending launch of the EOS mainnet in June 2018, another factor that’s been driving the growth of EOS tokens is a series of planned airdrops to EOS token holders, which are scheduled to take place in the weeks and months ahead.
What is an airdrop?
An airdrop is when a cryptocurrency project distributes cryptocurrency coins or tokens to its users free of charge. Often considered a marketing strategy, its goal is to not only reward users but also to spread awareness and drive widespread adoption of a particular project.
Check the list below to find out which projects are airdropping tokens and when the drop will occur.
